My friend Brain from SD2IG sent me some info on a couple of local Silverlight events:

The Intro to Flex portion will cover the Food Drive Resource Locator project developed during the Flex Code Jam at the 2008 Flex360 conference. This is the 2nd anniversary of the Seattle Flex User Group, so we'll be having cake and prizes!

For this month's PDXUX meeting we are celebrating the recent release of Silverlight 2 with a launch party hosted by the folks at North.
Our featured presenter is Tim Heuer, who is a Senior Program Manager for Microsoft Silverlight. He helps build the worldwide Silverlight community and is very passionate about the platform and technology in general. Having over 13 years of experience with Microsoft web technologies, Tim is excited about the opportunities that Silverlight brings for developers and designers and wants to ensure that everyone has the best information and tools available to them for success. Tim can be found online at

Along with Tim's presentation, we'll have several demo stations featuring Silverlight locals Erik Mork, Kelly White, and Jason Mauer. Learn more about Silverlight 2 features and how you can utilize them in your own web applications.

We'll also be talking about BizSpark, Microsoft's brand new program for supporting startups, and how you can get involved.
